Im on the fire dept. We hardly ever do enter structure fires, unless there is somebody there, or we can save it. Most of the time before we get the call the house/structure is completely engulfed. But friday night, we had to respond to a head on collision on a interstate. It was the worst i have ever saw, 2 fatalitys.

damn that sucks. the worst i saw was when a guy hit the side of a bridge at 140. When we got there the guy was dead and had lacerations to the head and neck...but there was no blood anywhere,except a little on the floor but not much. So we got him out and started getting the car on the towtruck and when it lifted up blood just ran down the ramp like a river...it was crazy as hell.

back home the emts and firemen are all fat and lazy. they are over paid and do very...very little work when they do there response times are slow and they often do the wrong thing. so yes it is like being a good cop bad cop. If you don't know your job and are not physically able to do it then you are a bad emt. most big city ones though are true heros. I might be part of the volunteer later on.

hah jeez i didnt even think about it that way. thats a good point. luckily in the places i have lived weve had good fire departments, like last year when one apartment caught on fire and the firefighters were there in like 3 minutes lol because we lived right across the street from the firestation

We WERE going to burn it to the ground, but we had to put it out because the lady that was letting us burn it was complaining that too much smoke was getting in her house. I guess she'll have fun spending money on a demolition team to tear it down.
